Upcoming Games in November 2018

This year is nearly coming to a close but November still contains a number of high profile releases. Weather it sequels to Battlefield, Fallout, Pokemon games consoles or the return of Darksiders. There is plenty to look forward to. Here if the list of Upcoming Games in November 2018.

Deracine

Upcoming Games in November 2018

Release Date:  November 6, 2018.
Developer: Fromsoftware
Store: PSN

Fromsoftware has been working very hard to diversify its portfolio and Deracine is perhaps its most offbeat title. As a fairy of sorts, the player moves around a boarding school influencing the lives of its students. Freezing time and building personal bonds with these students are the core tenents of the game.

However, it is most intriguing because it’s a PlayStation VR title. What does the story hold? and will it contain the same deep world building define so many Fromsoftware games? Deracine arrives on November 6, so it won’t be long before we find out.

Overkill’s The Walking Dead (PC Version)

Featuring remasters for Insomniac’s original games namely Spyro the Dragon, Spyro 2: Ripto’s Rage! and Spyro year of the dragon, this trilogy promises gorgeous graphics paired with the same awesome platforming.

If the weren’t enough, a remastered version of the soundtrack also accompanies the original with the ability to choose between the two.

Fallout 76

Release Date: November 14th, 2018
Developer:
Bethesda Game Studios
Store: 
gamestheshop.com, Bethesda Store, instant-gaming.com, Amazon.com

When Bethesda first announced Fallout 76, we were expecting a number of things. An online FPS RPG with social elements and games as a service content was not one of them. Impressions from the Beta have ranged from enthusiastic to somewhat worried.

We honestly don’t know how good Fallout 76 is until it releases will it bomb or should we learn to stop worrying and just love the always online gameplay. We will that out on November 14th for Xbox One, PS4, and PC. Check out our post on system requirements for Fallout 76.

Hitman 2

Release Date: November 14th, 2018
Developer: 
IO Interactive
Store:
hitman.com, Steam, Microsoft Store, gamestheshop.com

Those who are craving a solid stealth experience do not need to worry as Agent 47 is back in town. Hitman 2 promises a full game with six locations, different story missions, contracts, and multiple targets to hunt post-launch. Of course, the same challenges and variety of gameplay remain but IO interactive is adding some new intriguing content.

These modes let you compete against another player, fighting to assassinate targets faster than them. While the original Hitman’s locations and missions will be available and updated in the sequel. That is if you own the Hitman 1. Hitman 2 arrives on November 14th for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. This game should be yet another outing with our favorite assassin.

Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Let’s Go, Eevee!

Release Date: November 16th, 2018
Developer: 
Game Freak
Store:
nintendo.compokemonletsgo.pokemon.com

Well its sort of pokemon, the original 151 creatures are here. Battles with trainers and gym leaders still apply and Pokemon can be captured and trained. However, Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Let’s Go, Eevee! take several cues from the mobile Pokemon go series.

Incorporating Joy-con controls for capturing Pokemon, you can forgo motion controls altogether and sure it is weird but this is still a proper Pokemon game. We will find out how fun it is on November 16th for Nintendo Switch.

Battlefield V

Release Date: November 20th, 2018
Developer: 
EA DICE, Criterion Software
Store: ea.com, Origin, Microsoft Store, Amazon.com

The next iteration of Battlefield saw its own delay by roughly a month for additional polish. we have gotten a new better look at the various war stories contained within, the schedule for Tides of war, and how the game’s economy will work. While Firestorm won’t be available till March 2019, Battlefield V should still have a host of interesting mechanics to exploit like fortifications and companies on top of the new maps and modes. It is out on November 20th for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

Darksiders III

Release Date: November 27th, 2018
Developer: 
Gunfire Games
Store:
Steam, Microsoft Store, Amazon.com

The much-awaited sequel in the cult classic franchise is nearly upon us. Gunfire Game’s Darksiders III takes place in a seamlessly linked open world. while returning to the hack and slash action that defines the first game.

Playing as Fury one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse there will be wipes, acrobatics, magic, and different forms to take advantage of. How the quest to defeat the seven deadly sins plays out remains to be seen, but it should be a marked improvement over Darksiders II. Darksiders III is out on November 27th for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

Tetris Effect

Release Date: November 9th, 2018.
Developer: 
Resonair, Monstars

Many have played Tetris sure, but have you played Rez creator Tetsuya Mizuguchi‘s version of Tetris?
It arrives on PS4 and PlayStation VR bringing a new rhythm to the puzzle experience. While we dought people will see Tetris blocks falling after the game is over, the Tetris Effect should provide a serial yet visually splendid experience for the fans. Its launch date is November 9th, 2018.

Spider-Man DLC 2: Turf Wars

Release Date: November, 2018
Developer: 
Insomniac Games
Store:

Will famed villain Hammer Head make an appearance? time will tell. But for now, stay tuned for the DLC’s launch in November if you want more Spider-Man.

Elder Scrolls VI Confirmed for PS5

It’s actually been seven long years now since the original release of the Elderscrolls V: Skyrim.Elder Scrolls VI Confirmed for PS5 And after playing on just about everything from our 360s to our fridges I think the world is more than ready for the next installment. Elder Scrolls VI Confirmed for PS5

After having just a 30-second teaser trailer to keep us sated and theorizing all this time since the summer. We can finally reveal that we finally heard some news about when we can possibly expect the Elder Scrolls 6 to release.

Elder Scrolls VI Confirmed for PS5

In an interview with GameSpot at PAX Australia last week. Bethesda’s marketing chief Pete Hines and ZeniMax online studio‘s game director have pretty much confirmed that we won’t be seeing the Elder Scrolls 6 until the next generation of consoles. The game director said, “you can go back and count the years between Bethesda game studios releases. Then you’ll get the idea that the Elder Scrolls 6 is not coming anytime soon.”

When he was asked about the type of world that might feature in this massive new release. Then he continued with something interesting. “I don’t even know what the world is going to be like,” he says. “The time when it comes out there will be a different console generation by then, I’m sure.”

It is interesting that he evaded one question. But he seems to have maybe accidentally answered another question that was all on our minds. They described the Elder Scrolls 6 as being big and ambitious but didn’t say anything more specific. Although it’s maybe not the news you’re hoping to hear, it could be another seven years before we see this game. Who knows, but it does spark our imaginations quite a bit.

With games like Red Dead Redemption 2 already pushing the boundaries of our cut and hardware, who knows what this could mean for a game CDs like the Elder Scrolls. Can you imagine that level of detail in Tamriel? it’s gonna be incredible.Elder Scrolls VI Confirmed for PS5 We’re just gonna have to be a little bit more patient for it than we’d like to be.

How excited are you? Would you have preferred the game a little sooner on our current hardware?
or perhaps you’re happy patiently waiting to see what the Elder Scrolls 6 would look like on the XBOX Scarlett and the PlayStation 5. At least we’ve got Fallout at 76 to tryFallout-76-pre-order-beta

and Starfield to obsess over in the meantime.

Fallout 76 System Requirements Announced

Just a few days apart from the Fallout 76 beta test running live on PC. With progress from the beta carrying over to the main release on November 14th, next Tuesday is definitely a soft launch for Fallout 76. Before you drop down the cash for a Fallout 76 pre-order though. Bethesda‘s Fallout 76 System Requirements Announced, and it’s quite a change from Fallout 4.

Fallout 76 System Requirements Announced

Fallout 76 Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-4790 3.6 GHz or AMD Ryzen 3 1300X 3.5 GHz
  • RAM: 8 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 2 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 780 or Radeon R9 285
  • DX: DirectX 11
  • HDD: 60 GB Available Hard Drive Space

Similar to all Bethesda Game Studios titles, Fallout 76 works on an advanced version of the Creation Engine. It is the same engine used for Fallout 4. However, Bethesda declares it’s been heavily remodeled with new lighting models, better terrain mapping, and improved rendering processes. This transmutes to 16x the detail of Fallout 4, supposedly.

The Creation Engine enhancements mean a fairly large rise in the system specs for Fallout 76 as compared to Fallout 4. The recommended requirements for Fallout 4 are now the minimum specification for Fallout 76.

Fallout 76 Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-4790 3.6 GHz or AMD Ryzen 5 1500X 3.5 GHz
  • RAM: 8 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 4GB Video Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 or AMD Radeon R9 290X
  • DX: DirectX 11
  • HDD: 60 GB Available Hard Drive Space

Besides that, the initial thing that comes to mind in terms of the Fallout 76 PC system requirements is the minimum and recommended CPUs. Those are the Intel Core i7-4790 and the AMD Ryzen 3 1300X has risen up to a Rysen 5 1500X. The Core i7-4790 is at around the same in case of performance level as the Ryzen 1500X, and it is much faster than a Ryzen 3 1300X. Therefore, we can fairly assume, this can only mean the actual minimum spec Intel CPU should be much lower. Something like a Core i5-4570 should be able to run Fallout 76 just fine as its gaming performance is on par with AMD’s budget processor.

Aside from the CPUs, Fallout 76’s requirement for RAM stays the same from 3-7 GB, the hard drive space required is 60-85 GB. Also, there is a minor boost to the graphics cards required to run Fallout 76 at 1080p resolution with steady frame rates. Earlier, Fallout 4 would easily run on a GTX 780, but now you’ll need a GeForce GTX 970 or AMD Radeon R9 290X. It is not a major change, but Fallout 76 is clearly a game that’s going to serve from having at least 4GB VRAM available.

Top 10 PS4 Games Under 20 Dollars

When games come out they’re expensive. And sometimes because of that, we miss them. But the monetary entry point for these PlayStation 4 games has gone way down. So, here are the top 10 PS4 Games Under 20 Dollars.

Games that are really big and awesome. Games that don’t really have any business being this cheap. The prices do fluctuate so they may be lower than noted on this list. Because these titles now go on sale oftentimes.

Uncharted The Nathan Drake Collection

Uncharted The Nathan Drake Collection

This is a collection of the first three Uncharted games. In my opinion, these games are all good enough, that they would justify the price. They are selling it at a net price of $9.99 on their own.

While the first one is a little bit shakier than number two and three. These are games that really made a lot of the conventions of today’s modern third-person games into conventions. It is very derivative of Tomb Raider and the new Tomb Raider is very derivative of itself. So what happens when the genre is developed. And this is such a big leap in not just the exact each genre it occupies. But a lot of adjacent genres as well. Therefore, Ten Dollars for three fantastic games, that’s 3 dollars and 33 cents. Which really cheap…

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

metal gear solid 5 the phantom pain

This game was incredibly well reviewed for all the right reasons. It is packed with content and you have so much means as to how you are going to cross that content. The world is very detailed and very strange. And yet it is set in the past when a lot of the strangeness is a lot less explainable.

The characters are really the elements of the story that shines the most. The story is quite simple actually. But, in my opinion, it’s the gameplay that really brings you to the phantom pain.  It is such a good mix of stealth open-world gameplay and outright action. That it totally justifies a $19.99 price point. $19.99 is very low for such a huge, wide, expansive, and immersive experience.

Doom 2016

Doom 2016

This game has every right to be around $40 at this moment but it is $19.99. This was in every way a huge development in the first-person shooter genre. In the franchise’s lifespan, Doom 2016 added so many interesting mechanics. While retaining the things that make Doom what it is now.

If you look at it it looks like Doom, it’s got every hallmark of doom. The visuals, the speed, the weapons, but they also added a bunch of interesting chaining mechanics and the multiplayer is great. Now, Doom cost $19.99, that is ridiculous to pass up.

Bloodborne

Bloodborne

It is a masterpiece of work From Software. This is a game that took some of the conventions of Dark Souls and turned them on their head. It basically made it so that there’s no good reason for you to use the shield. Which encourages some very different gameplay mechanic and your strategies change.

Besides that, the world that Bloodborne occupies is very different than the world of Dark Souls. It is much more along the lines of a Lovecraftian nightmare rather than a medieval fantasy one. It plays a little bit like a faster Dark Souls that are more oriented toward dodging than blocking.

Which is great because that gameplay mechanic and that combination of strategies is fun as hell. It is also not as hard but it’s pretty damn hard. To say it’s not a challenge would be really difficult to sound as if you’re good at games. It is tough, but it is the fun kind of tough. It is only $19.99, therefore, considering the amount of time you’ll spend in the world of Bloodborne, that’s dirt-cheap.

Stardew Valley

Stardew Valley

This game is an honor to the Super Nintendo Harvest Moon series. It brings a lot of new elements to the table, develops the genre, the idea, the entirety of it. Stardew Valley turns it into a little bit more of a simulator and a little bit less of a narrative game.

Stardew Valley image02

However, it’s kind of already not too far in either direction. So Stardew Valley is concentration on the gameplay elements of it while maintaining the more nostalgic aesthetics of the old-school Harvest Moon games.

It is a good choice and a lot of the things added to it actually remind me of Minecraft, except for it’s really nothing like Minecraft. There are a lot of games that are like that actually. Except this is a farming simulator, and it’s fun as hell. It is also only $14.99 which is a steal.

Rocket League

Rocket League

This game is as the developers have described it before. It is basically soccer, but with rocket-powered cars. Have you ever seen a match of this game go, there’s no other way to describe it. And although its first release was way back in 2015 there are over 40 million players, as of the beginning of 2018 playing this game. This is one of those games where even if you don’t understand the appeal, it is still worth a spin. Because playing it is highly addictive in a good way.

It’s just a fun goofy weird game that manages to do exactly what it sets out to do. And it only costs $13.99, which is it’s certainly worth giving it a shot. 40 million people can’t be wrong.

Yakuza Kiwami

Yakuza Kiwami

It approximately translates to “Yakuza Ultimate” and with good reason it is a remake of the original Yakuza. It is using all of the more recent Yakuza technology. It looks unique it plays phenomenally and it is just wonderful.

The Yakuza series is absolutely just wonderful. It is such an immersive narrative and although the open world doesn’t boast square footage. It is easily one of the densest lived-in and alive feeling open worlds there is. Going back and redoing the original to the point where it is closer to the goals of the modern Yakuza games. It just does so much for it, it is such a good version of the game and it’s such a good game as it stands. It is also only $19.99 now, So pick it up…

Until Dawn

Until Dawn

It is the narrative game that is about your choices. Most people consider being much better about player choice than a lot of narrative games much like it. It goes above and beyond to ensure that your choices actually do have effects.

All elements of the story eventually have to deal with which is really commendable. And considering how many branches and how much it actually changes its kind of amazing they made a game like this. Which takes on average 11-12 hours to play. It is even more amazing is that you can buy it now for $5.99 and I would say you should.

Uncharted 4

Uncharted 4 Top 10 PS4 Games Under 20 Dollars

Obviously, if you’re wanting the entire uncharted collection you’ll have to pick this one up. In my opinion, it is without a doubt one of the best games ever made. It is the culmination of Uncharted, it goes so much further in its storytelling. The environments are so much more ambitious, the set pieces are bigger, better, and more edge-of-your-seat.

And the action, the shooting, the actual bulk of the game is never boring. It is just remarkable, such a well-made game. It has so many elements that are just done to perfection. At 9.99 not to pick up this game, especially if you haven’t played it. I can’t understand what you are thinking.

Last of Us Remastered

Last of Us Remastered

The horror classic in every way shape or form. Which is getting a highly anticipated sequel that frankly,  I’m quite thrilled for this game. It personally has an updated, much better-looking, HD, and enjoyable version of itself on the PlayStation 4.

It allows you to go through the absolutely nerve-wracking scenarios, which this game puts you through. And honestly it really does, it allows you to experience the narrative triumph that is The Last of Us. And the best possible quality at $19.99, to experience really one of the best. It just makes sense.

Ther you have it, the list of Top 10 PS4 Games Under 20 Dollars.
